** Across his writing and TV commentary, he describes people by making unflattering comparisons, and there are a number of adjectives he returns to time and again, including "haunted" (describing UsefulNotes/GordonBrown as a "haunted grandfather clock", a pair of ''TheXFactor'' contestants as "haunted porcelain dolls", etc.) and "dented" (describing [[BigBrother Jade Goody's]] mother as "[[EastEnders Dot Cotton]] reflected in the side of a dented kettle", [[SelfDeprecation himself]] as having a face "like a rucksack full of dented bells", etc.).

** "Derp" was apparently a nonsense word invented on the set of ''{{Baseketball}}'' to exemplify stupid humor. It has been carried over to WesternAnimation/SouthPark in several forms, with no in-show explanation or link between them. Once there was a substitute school chef named "Mr. Derp" who did stupid physical gags; another time there was a Rob Schneider movie trailer (as part of a running gag of successively stupider movie trailers) whose narration consisted almost entirely of nonsensical permutations of the word "Derp".
